PHYSIATRY

Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, or Physiatry, is the branch of medicine emphasizing the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders that produce temporary or permanent functional impairment. Physiatrists provide a full spectrum of care. They restore function lost through injury, illness or disabling conditions.  Physiatrists treat the entire person and not just the symptoms.  


Dr. Cheng is an interventional physiatrist, fellowship trained in non-surgical spinal care and a dedicated spine specialist.  He diagnoses the underlying cause for your pain and treats patients using minimally invasive techniques.

Dr. Cheng believes in multi-disciplinary treatment.  This means that, when appropriate, referrals to other services are considered.  These include Physical Therapy, Surgery, Neurology, Psychology and others as needed.
